Since there's a lot of icon hostility floating around, I decided to do this:
-Comment with your username and people will comment with what they feel about your icons. COMMENT TO THOSE PEOPLE ANONYMOUSLY, even if it's good or bad. Feel free to use examples, but please try not to hotlink. If you need to, use a regular link to an image.

So, anonymous is on, IP is off. PIMP THIS PLEASE.
And please don't be rude when commenting, there is a difference between constructive and destructive criticism.

Also, even if you feel like you're not the best icon maker, please comment anyway, or comment to other people. This is supposed to help people grow, and see their strengths and weaknesses.

you're ruining some good bases with too many stamps and borders.

I'm such a sheep but this a very good idea!

Personally, I love them. My only qualm is the lack of a defining border.
It could just be a personal habit of mine, but I feel icons look so much cleaner if they have at least a one-pixel black (though any color would do) border around the edge.

That way, it looks good with any color as it's background.

Could just be me, though.

Your icons lack of everything. The coloring part is the most obvious, most of them look like a cropped cap with text.

Not discouraging you, you need to work hard.

Your icons have really improved since I first saw them. I used to think that they were rather bland, but you've gotten much better with coloring and I really like the shadowing you've been adding lately. Your weak spot seems to be text though. It seems as though you just have a lack of good fonts to use rather than being bad at adding the text itself, because you are rather creative with it (like in this icon: http://img110.imageshack.us/img110/977/sephirothgodfailure9en.png). I'd hold off on the longer simple fonts (like in this icon: http://img122.imageshack.us/img122/9640/lenneghostlywhispers5pj.png) and try using a few more cursive fonts. Really, the only thing I dislike is the font choice in some of them. I see you improving a lot and I think you'll continue to do so.

I'm not an icon fan at all. I really don't give a crap about them. But I do love your icons, it's mostly how you crop the picture and the fonts you use :)

I only discovered your icons the other day when you crossposted your recent lost icons but I loved them straight away. The cropping and the sharpening are completely spot on and I for one adore the colours. Great great great work.

And I'm annoyed cos it won't let me comment anonymously, grr.

I'd love some feedback.

I think you have a really beautiful style, especially when it comes to cropping. The only thing I would like to comment on is that you sometimes oversharpen an icon. Other than that; keep up the good work! :)

I don't like be anonymous... Okay, the truth is, I'm too lazy to log out LOL.

Anyway, your icons... icons you make... are really great, better and better. I'm kinda jealous because of that. Your icons are cooler than mine *beczy*

You rule when it comes to coloring and cropping!
I love that you don't follow trends too heavily but instead stick to your own style, but like the person above me said; don't be afraid to take some chances! :)
